You may have a defective battery. Depending on the notebook and battery, try one of following procedures to confirm if this is merely a battery problem:

1. Examine the battery to see if there is a built-in charge status indicator on it. These will be a series of LEDs and a button that, when pressed, will cause one or more to illuminate. If none of the LEDs illuminate, even after the unit has been charging for some time, you probably have a bad battery. Or

2. Remove the battery from the notebook, attach the power adapter, and turn on the computer. If the computer runs WITHOUT the battery installed, you probably have a bad battery.

When trying to turn on my Garmin1450, it only comes on to the first Garmin screen. The one that displays just the Garmin LOGO. It will flash after a while, and sometimes goes off.


Hello,

Be sure that the unit is receiving and holding a charge to the battery. The vehicle power cable has a led on the plug end that will light up to indicate power to the cable.
Try doing a reset on the nuvi by pressing and holding the power button on for at least 10 seconds.
You could also try running the Garmin WebUpdater and reload the latest update.
Although the unit may have the latest update, reloading it will often resolve any issues.
Download and Install WebUpdater.

Gateway NV5207u will not power on when the power button is pressed. The Power light does not light up when the battery or AC power is plugged in. Can you help?


Sounds like there is a serious fault in the motherboard. I'm assuming you checked that the AC adaptor is working ok? Check first that there is power to the adaptor and power out of the adaptor by ensuring the green led is on and not flashing, a flashing led indicates power is not making a circuit in the motherboard and therefore a faulty powerboard.

Laptop won't switch on although blue power light on is showing power is getting to the machine


Check the power adaptor led is not flashing. Flashing Adaptor LED indicates fault with laptop charging circuit / powerboard

If it will not boot on battery, and you know the adaptor to be good, the issue lies with the motherboard.
Sometimes, removing the battery, and unplugging, pressing the power button and holding it for 30 secs, replacing the adaptor only will allow it to boot up, but this will only work if the motherboard is not damaged r the CPU fan has not failed.

My laptop (hp x9010)is not switching on ,i pressed the reset button but still not responding whats the problem and solution


This could be down to several problems.
Firstly, check that the battery is being charged by the charger and indeed if power is getting to the laptop via the charger. The simplest way is to see if the charger LED light is green. Flashing green indicates that the power is being "spat back".. ie: not completing the circuit and this indicates that the charging circuit on the board may be damaged.

Secondly, is the charger plug tight in the port? A loose plug will not make enough contact (if it is try wiggling it and see if that helps. If it IS loose and works whan wiggling, you will need to get it replaced.

Thrirdly, try removing the battery and AC power, press the on button for 30 seconds, reconnect the Ac adaptor only and see if it then powers up

failing that, it would seem that the main fuse on the motherboard has bloen and you need it replacing

Won't turn on. Battery is plugged in and lit. n


Try removing your battery pack. Then connect the power adaptor (even without the battery) and connect is directly to the power outlet. If it powers up, then the battery pack might be defective or totally drained.

If the battery is just totally drained, simply place the battery to the laptop. Do not turn the laptop on. Plug the power adaptor to the laptop and plug it to the power source. If you see that the charging LED is blinking in your laptop, then just leave it charging up to 5 to 8 hours.

Never use a laptop on battery mode while it is plugged in to a power source. This is the number 1 reason why laptop batteries don't last longer.

I have a new e627 used only once before today. Battery connection was partially out and screen indicated low battery. After five minutes screen went black and now I cannot power up.


Maybe your battery is totally drained.

Try to connect the AC adaptor of your laptop and plug it to the wall outlet and let it charge for 3 hours or more. When you plug it on the wall socket, it won't show the laptop's led blinking since it was totally drained. But after 3 minutes or more, it will start to show the blinking led to indicate charging. When blinking stops led light disappears, it is fully charged and ready to use.

Remember: Do not use your laptop while it is plugged in to save your battery life. When at home, remove the battery while it is fully charged and plug the AC adaptor directly to the wall outlet. It will still work without the battery as long as it is plugged directly to the wall socket.

sounds like you have an intermittent problem with your AC adaptor or dc input jack. Does the light on the AC adaptor light up when you plug it in? If it does then your dc input jack may be faulty. If the light on the ac adaptor does not light then replace the ac adaptor. Good Luck!
